Apple Every year on World Consumer Rights Day (March 15), government-controlled China Central Television (CCTV) broadcasts a special report (in Chinese) damning companies for abusing Chinese consumers. This year the targets included Apple. Apple was accused of giving Chinese consumers worse service than customers in other countries, specifically of giving them replacements that included cases from their old phone, while customers in the UK would get a 100% new product.

That's true, but you also wouldn't get the warranty period to reset whenever you made a claim on the warranty anywhere else. That's just crazy. It give people an incentive to make specious warranty claims just to extend their warranty. If I were Apple, I'd try to get around it too.
